The sculpture attempts to capture not only the activity of the research centre, but the very spirit behind this research. There is in medicine and in art a unique connectivity of subject and subject matter ... this work attempts to capture this ... the figure is in unison with the protein structure, mimicking its every twist and turn ... there in his reach is anticipation, hope and a sought objective ... discovery within grasp." -- Veronica and Edwin Dam de Nogales, commenting on their bronze sculpture Spirit of Discovery, located in the forecourt of the Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ont.
